Hi paulsage8

If the vehicle emits black heavy smoke, the fault will likely to be from the injector pump....

The economy problem is first attend to by replacing the fuel filter.....Once removed, before fitting a replacement, fill it to the top with clean diesel fuel and then screw it home....Bleed all remaining air and when starting the engine, bleed the individual injectors.....After completing also replace the air filter....

I have a F-250 2007 6.0 Deisel. I had to replace the sending unit in the tank to mark the fuel level. My diesel consumption is getting worse by the day. I'm one that changes oil every 5k miles and fuel...

The MAF sensor in the air intake has a Temperature sensor in it to automatically adjust injector timing. Try cleaning it with Electronics cleaner and see if the problem goes away.

With the aftermarket products if have heard mostly good things, but it comes down to setting the injector timing for the best results and that can be done with the stock parts. With the Diesel you get your mixture by setting when the fuel enters the chamber. There are parts like the ICP which is under the Y pipe at the bottom of the engine on Turbos that can affect fuel consumption. Some of the crank sensors can be adjusted to fix timing issues.

For the price of fuel take it to someone with the proper gauges if cleaning or replacing the MAF does not help you. You really need to know what is going on with measured readings. A sticking Injector can do you in even if the timing is okay.

I hope you find my solution practical and helpful.

My jetta tdi has high deisel consumption. why ?

My 1996 LE toyota corolla gives me 300km for 40 liters of fuel. This is a very high consumption for 1.8L engine. It runs fine. No rich fuel smell. Any possible reason for this?

Roughly 200 miles for 10 gallons, or 20 miles per gallon. You should be getting 30MPG. Your fuel is going somewhere, if it is not coming out of the tailpipe it is leaking out of somewhere else. Check for fuel leaks.

High fuel consumption. only 200 miles per tank

it has gotta be the o2 sensor, map sensor, or the mass air flow meter.............. these are the main inputs to the computer that controls the fuel control....let me know how that works out please

Oil Change two weeks ago and oil level is low already???

I assume you have no leaks as you say. Your van does hold 5 quarts of 10w30 oil with filter change. The level was 1/4" above the add mark, which is less than 1 quart low. You drove the van 1,300 miles so it is very possible that it could burn that much oil in that many miles without you seeing much smoke. Top it off and have someone else drive it. Have them get up to around 60 mph, then let off the accelerator and let it coast down to 30 mph, then accelerate fully while you follow in another vehicle. If your van is burning oil you will see a big puff of blue smoke when they accelerate after coasting. If you do not I would suspect you were cheated out of about 1/2 quart of oil. You would not be the first person this has happened to. Top it off and check as I described and then check the level after driving another 1,300 miles. If it is still full find another place to change your oil as the place you went are crooks.

Engine seems to be burning oil. escort van 1.8 d year Y 2001 used 2.5 litres of oil within 3,000 miles no leaks showing and co is correct as just passed mot less than a week ago.

You should have the compression checked to see if the cylinders are in good shape. When a deisel starts to use oil, it burns it as it would fuel. The mot test is o/k because your emission system is working well. Hope this helps.Moe

High fuel consumption

change o2 sensors every 60,000 miles and use iridium plugs they will outlast engine.
check engine light will not come on until sensors are completely shot,this also goes for your mass air flow,had same issues with 99 beetle happened at 80,000 miles,changed all three items ended up with 35mpg after getting 24mpg before are cheap on ebay.

How to improve the fuel efficiency?

my 2 cents -

1. You didn't specify your exact model, on this site you'll fond your answer -

2. There are a few ways to do this, here's one -
- Fill your gas tank to the very top.
- Write down your odometer or reset you trip meter.
- Drive your car till it's time to fill it up again.
- When it's time to fill you tank, fill it to the very top (preferd in the same station, in the same pump).
- divide the number of miles (or kilometers) you drive, by the amount of gas you filled, This is of course only true for this gas tank, fuel consumption is effected by many things, load, driver, type of miles you do (city or hoghway), etc..

3. Service your car regularly, make sure tire pressure is correct, don't drive like you are racing.

Good luck,
